I had a patient where an opposing car hit a deer and launched into the windshield of his truck. It kil...

Re: Self launch and self land option

I had a 12.5m Flysurfer Psycho (the first one) drag my Nissan Maxima and then rip the roof rack off it. So I can't say I would tether a flying foil kite to anything. Learn to self land it the right way in lighter winds. Its not that hard. And if you find the wind come up to the point that you are af...

Re: We should be wearing sunglasses throughout the day and especially while kiteboarding! Why aren't we?

The China Export stuff doesn't work in retail, especially in big chains. In the US we see these knock off inexpensive China export sunglasses for sale in kiosks in the mall and on spinners in our gas stations.

Re: Flying footswitch learning time

Flat water helps. Also choosing a small patch of water to practice so you try again and again.

Re: Ozone Hyperlink V2

a smaller size..thinking a 5m. I’m riding V1 5 7 and 9 and foil kites generally since 2003. Big range on these kites and I think 12 -5 is doable. In my biggest gap I did FS speed 1 17m stepping down to 7. I think 7-9 is a much better quiver than 5-12. 5 is a sweet and super fun kite. 7 is my most u...
